Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Matthew, Upminster
Qualification: Mystery Hour God
Answer: The headquarters of the Roman Catholic church is in Vatican City, Rome. They could afford all the best artists at the time, so they were able to dictate exactly how Jesus was depicted. Also, at the time, there was a big trade in black Africans, so they did not want Jesus to look like that for commercial reasons.
